  • Rooted Epic 4G
  • CWM (Or Newer) BML
  • CWM (Or Newer) MTD


Rooting Your Phone:

Converting To MTD:


1. Backup your device via CWM Nandroid, MyBackup, Titanium, etc.
2. Serenicity’s newest installer will determine how to install your phone:
Running the last version?   The newest version will patch your phone quickly.
Running a different rom?    Serenicity will attempt to preserve your data.
Want to do a clean install?  Wipe your phone and install like any other rom.
3. Enter ClockWorkMod Recovery.
5. Flash the latest Serenicity.
6. Reboot and enjoy your blazing fast, battery-sipping Epic.


  • Open Terminal Emulator and enter the following:

This will freeze Updates, SNS, and DRM services the same way Titanium Backup would. Substituting “superdefrost” for “superfreeze” will thaw these services out instead.

  • Heavily recommended is to disable data syncing (not 3G data) once you’ve imported your contacts and to reduce screen brightness to the lowest comfortable level, disabling auto brightness.
  • Adao Task Killer has been included and pre-configured. Simply place a widget on one of your homescreens, and click it to quickly and safely close all erroneous apps/services. Auto-kill is disabled and an ignore list is included.
  • Adaway is included, but may need to be run to check for updates.


  • The default installation is Full.
  • If you don’t know what’s stripped in the Lite version, you probably want Full.
  • If you want to overclock, check out Tegrak , SetCpu, or VoltageControl.
  • If you notice any major issues like Force Closes, wipe and reinstall.
  • DRM will only be installed with a Full installation to save battery.
  • Google Nav GPS works wonderfully fast and accurate.
  • Sprint Hotspot will work freely, use it without fear.

The following can be downloaded and flashed through CWM:
